The Holidays are Just Around the Corner!

 As summer ends, the autumn leaves start to fall, and temperatures drop. The cooler days and chilly nights remind us that the holidays will soon be here. You're probably thinking about your holiday decorating and entertaining. Many homes feature extravagant light displays and yard items. However, as you plan for your holiday guests, don't forget about your entertainment furniture. If it's been a while since you hosted a holiday gathering, some new pieces might be in order.

Furniture for the Holidays

The holidays are all about enjoying time and good food together. Whether you're hosting five or 50 for a meal, you want everyone to be comfortable and have plenty of room to eat. A new dining table with luxuriously upholstered chairs brightens up your kitchen and makes your holiday visitors feel welcome. You could also add a new buffet or server to make serving those delicious dishes more convenient. At Cardi's Furniture & Mattresses, you can choose coordinating sideboards & buffets in a brilliant white or a classic wood finish to match your existing entertainment furniture. And be prepared... guests are not always as careful with your dining table and serving pieces. A good, quality, felt padded table pad will preserve your brand new table and server tops and your sanity.

Holiday Furniture for Entertaining

Once everyone's had their fill of all the holiday goodies, they'll be looking for cozy entertainment home furnishings to settle in for a nap until it's time for leftovers. Give them plenty of options with beautiful recliners and elegant chairs scattered throughout your rooms. You can choose from many different colors and fabrics to express your style and match your home's style. If you want to go all out for comfort and luxury, a massage chair is just the thing to make your holiday guests feel at home. Cardi's Furniture & Mattresses has a beautiful selection of benches and ottomans to add to your entertainment furniture if space is more limited.

While you're getting your living room ready to welcome friends and family, remember that accessories aren't just for your favorite holiday outfit. A well-placed end table or sofa table gives your guests a place to set down a drink or pile up some presents. Cardi's Furniture & Mattresses also offers a wide selection of tables with storage space so that you get a beautiful addition to your room and a place to store games, puzzles, and family pictures to share with your guests.

For the ultimate in holiday accessorizing, consider adding a media fireplace to your entertainment area. These unique pieces give you a look and feel of a traditional fireplace without the hassle and mess that comes with bringing in firewood. The electric fireplace inserts are versatile, with many settings for heat, light, and appearance. However, media fireplaces come with a bonus. They give you space for your television and peripherals, and some even have cabinets and shelves for storage. A media fireplace with storage is a great way to store video game systems, remotes, books, and magazines.
